Warning: I do tend to cuss. Sometimes, it’s rather often. That’s just who I am. If you don’t like it, well that sucks for you. My cussing has no real patterns. I use it both when angry, and casual conversation. If you’re offended by that, I’m sorry. It’s just part of who I am. Might be mean, but get the hell over it, seriously. If my language offends you, I don’t give a fuck, and we prolly wouldn’t have gotten along anyways.
First off, hi there! Ha, if you’re reading this, you’re prolly (probably) either a new follower, or one who’s been following me for a while and decided to see what all new you could learn about me. Please note, I’m going to put a lot of info here. But, that’s okay. If you cared enough to look at this in the first place, I’m going to guess you won’t mind reading a decent bit of info. So…yeah. Here goes nothing.
Well, to start, I’m Nick. You can call me that, Mac (last name Scottish, so it starts with Mc/Mac) or Taco (most online people call me this) or even Rev/The Reverend. As long as I know you’re talking to me, I’ll pretty much always respond. Don’t be afraid to send me messages, by the way, anon or not. I rarely get them, so it’s exciting when I do. I’m from the lovely Metro-Atlanta area in Georgia. I’m pretty chill, for the most part, but sometimes I do have a temper, and I can sometimes become a major asshat, fair warning. When I have an opinion on something, it’s usually a very strong opinion, and depending on the scenario, I can/will argue to the death about it. People tell me all the time I’d make a good lawyer because of that, but ehh. I love music too much to pursue something like that.
I like music. Wait….no. I LOVE Music. Music has sort of become my life. I love Marching Band, Drum Corps (currently playing Xylo for Atlanta CV) and I especially love drumming. I also like listening to (almost) anything. Techno, Orchestral, Punk Rock, Instrumental, Smooth Jazz, Swing Jazz, 40s/50s, etc.. The only music I really don’t like, are the really heavy metal/screamo stuff, and country. I can’t stand either one. Just a personal preference though. If you like those, that’s cool, I guess. It’s your opinion, so whatever. I really like almost everything, though. I like things from Skillet, Breaking Benjamin, and Three Days Grace, to things like Daft Punk, DJ Tiesto, and other Techno artists, to some slower things like Flobots, Howie Day, and Hey Monday. The music I listen to, tends to depend on my mood, but I can listen to almost anything.
Speaking of mood, I occasionally have moments that make me seem bipolar. I’m not actually bipolar, I just have moments, like every other human. I tend to bottle up most of my emotions, so every now n then they just kind of explode out. Typically tho, the extreme emotions like depression or rage/wraith, I put on my private blog, so you won’t have to worry about much here. Maybe just some sub-texts about people…
On that note, I’m a really helpful guy. If you ever need someone with like a good quote or word of advice, or just a shoulder to cry on, hand to help get you up on your feet, or anything of that sort, I’m pretty good at being there for people. I will always help someone, if they ask for it. If you need my help, I will do my best to try and help you. Relationship advice, problem with a friend or family member, or just whatever. If I can help, I will. If not, I’ll admit that I can’t. But I’ll still try. I don’t like disappointing people.
Now, I s’pose onto some more personal things about me. Most of those are/were pretty basic/general things. Now, onto specifics and personal.
My life has been an interesting ride, so far. I’ve had lots of ups and downs, and it just overall is a confusing clusterfuck of stuff. I don’t tell most people my whole life story (honestly, because it takes too damn long is the main reason. But also, that’s a rather personal thing, so yea) but, I mean, I’ve learned to deal with it. I’ve gotten good at “rolling with the punches,” so to speak. Kinda goes with my bottling of emotions. But eh, ya know how it is. Everyone’s life sucks, some just deal with it better than others.
Now, Trust and me are a funny thing. Depending on the person, you can sometimes gain my trust easily. Now, there’s no sure-fire way to gain my trust. It just happens. Usually, if you’re a nice, chill person, you’ll get it pretty quickly. But, there’s something about my Trust, and really my Respect as well, that you should know. Don’t betray/lose it. If you lose my trust and/or my respect, it’s very difficult to gain back. And I tend to be more of an asshole to those who have lost either one.
Although I tend to be a bit conceited/arrogant, I really only have 2 qualities I like about myself. The first one is my confidence. I can and will wear whatever the hell I want, and do whatever I want, and I really don’t give a shit as to who doesn’t like it. People like making their petty little insults towards me with some of the things. Okay, I don’t give a fuck. They’re opinion doesn’t matter to me. I know who I am, I know what I’m not, and I know what I like/want. If people don’t like that, and try to bash me, fuck them. I don’t care if I do/don’t please you. I don’t care if you dis/approve of the shit I do. Because I’m me. I don’t really fall under a ‘label’ or a stereotype, per se. I’m just me. I’m a lot of things.
Random fact/thought: My parents are divorced, and I’m glad for it. My dad is a massive, hypocritical fuckass. He was a jerk to my mother, and he wasn’t there for me or my bro for a lot of our childhood, especially mine. I’ve had to deal with a lot of shit I shouldn’t have because of him. Now, I don’t hate the man. I respect him. He is my father, after all. And, he helped make me into the person I am today. So, I do respect him. I don’t approve of some of the things he does or says, but that’s okay because I don’t see him that often anyways. I currently live with my mom, future step-dad, and my bro (tho me and him both are off to college soon) It’s a pretty good life, for the most part.
I’m a bit of an introvert though. I’m socially awkward, and sometimes I have social anxiety. It’s not that I don’t like talking to people, I do. But I hate talking first. When I try to text or IM people first, I feel like I’m being annoying. It’s the same reason I’ll help all these people with problems, but I don’t like having people help me with problems. I feel like I’m a burden on them and they don’t really care. I’m also paranoid, which sucks ass, by the way. I like staying in my room. I’d also much rather talk to people online, than in person. Well, I guess that depends on the person, but I do prefer online either way, due to my slight social anxiety.
As I said earlier, I love band, particular Marching Band, I’m currently in my schools band (graduating this year, however) on the Drumline. I love doing Band. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever decided to do. When you go out on that field, put on a great show, and the crowd goes crazy, I love it. I love playing the cadences up in the stands. I love Marching Band. It is amazing. I especially love Drumline (not that awful movie, the real thing) it’s amazing. I;m the current Drum Captain, and play Quads. But really, I’m an all-around Percussionist. I can play a lot of Percussion instruments, with relative ease. Drumming, I consider to be my passion. I’m very happy when I’m drumming. When I’m mad and need to calm down, I drum. I drum all the time, really. This tends to annoy people, but oh well. I love drumming, and I love being in the band. Some things in it do get on my nerves, don’t get me wrong. But I love it. It’s a great experience. I also play a little bit of Piano in my spare time. I’m not good, but ya know, it’s just a small hobby.
I also currently am in a Drum Corps. I play Xylophone for the 2013 Atlanta CV Drum Corps. Hoping to increase my skills and maybe go out for the Drumline next year, if possible. Also hoping to be on/in Percussion in college.
I’m big into video games. I love video games. I’ve always loved them, really. My favorite game series are Pokemon, and Gears of War. I like shooter games, action/adventure, some simulation, and some RPGs. I’m a hardcore gamer, and I think I always will be.They’re a nice release for when I can’t drum, ha.
Quotes are another thing I love. I love reading quotes, finding them, and using them when people need advice. Sometimes I’ll post a random quote, or go on a spam of them. They’re really inspirational and thought-provoking sometimes.
Well, I suppose that’s the basic gist of it. If you actually read all of this, kudos to you. I know it’s a lot to read. Took a while to type, frankly. And every now n then I’ll go through and make some edits to it. ‘Cause I’m an ever-changing person. On a daily basis, it may feel like nothing ever changes…but I look back on myself every now n then, and just see how much has actually changed, and it’s insane. And awesome. And just….well, I’m not sure the exact word for it. Anyways, if you ever wanna chat, just hit me up. My ask box is just a click away.
Thank you for reading all of this. I hope this gives you a good idea of who I am.
